The Red Balloon

Do you remember this? I have been searching for books that I haven't read to my kids yet and remembered how much I loved this one as a kid. I recall viewing the film in elementary school more than once and loving that too. There are hardly any words in the film, except Pascal calling, "ballon, ballon" a few times. I love the story of his friend, the balloon and its loyalty. The revolt of the balloons in the end of the story is especially exciting.

I barely remember seeing. And that greatly disappoints me. I'll have to get Fred on it for me. He has his ways....as a librarian and all.

I loved that film. I didn't know there was a book either. I'll have to look for it.

I love this book and I love the store in West Palm Beach that is named after it. Absolutely the best Consignment Shop ever. They have served me for two generations of children! 25+years.
